Fans and critics alike are one in the discussion of admiring the work of Tom Hiddleston as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has become more popular than he ever could have imagined as his name is now synonymous with the character that he plays.
In the MovieWeb interview last year, Hiddleston thought that Ragnarok was the way to go for Thor 3 and offered his thoughts on what the potential storyline could be about.
I think there are very interesting things that happen. In the mythology, when you get into Ragnarok, which is the “end of all things”, it's not the end of the world…It's the end of time, and the universe, and space. And I think, if I am correct…Loki essentially, sets that in motion. And his motivation for doing so is intriguing and he almost becomes the incarnation of chaos, in a way…So I think that can be quite new.
If Marvel Studios will go in this direction which the actor says is what happened in the mythology, then Ragnarok is Loki’s fault and not some other new big bad villain that Thor and his companions will be facing. With Loki being the “incarnation of chaos,” I’m wondering if he will actually use one of the infinity stones to make himself more powerful.
Again, Hiddleston hints at another potential direction for the film when he talks about Loki having a wife.
In the myth, he has a wife called Sigyn who protects him from a poison serpent who is dripping venom into his mouth. And she has a bowl over his mouth and of course the bowl keeps filling up and she has to empty it, and so his damnation could be interesting. I don't know…I mean, Loki is a character who's existed in popular consciousness for 3,000 years, so there are many, many iterations I could explore…It's just a question of whether audiences would want to see him again.
Want to see him again? Of course! We’d love to see Hiddleston play Loki over and over again. Here’s hoping that his Marvel Studios contract doesn’t expire any time soon.
